Mateo Carreras was cited ex officio for the action that occurred in the Newcastle and Wasps duel last Friday with Josh bassett, in what was a new day of the Premiership. The decision made by intentional eye contact, against World Rugby Law 9.12 or alternatively reckless eye contact.
In this way, the Argentine will appear before an independent disciplinary panel online Wednesday night. Carreras was cited by Commissioner Chris Sharp and the independent disciplinary panel will consist of Charles Cuthbert (chair), along with Daniel White and Leon Lloyd.
The Argentine was one of the high points in Newcastle despite the loss to Wasps, and this particular action occurred within 30 minutes of the first stage, before the attempt of the visiting team.
Josh Bassett tried to reach the ingoal, and immediately after what happened with the Argentine wing, Wasps’s back got up and protested with the referee. In the meeting, the TMO did not review the action and Carreras was not sanctioned.
